Krakow: Kawaleria - courtyard delight

We wanted music with our dinner and found this restaurant just down the road from our aparthotel on Golebia Street. It offered a dinner of Polish cuisine in a candle-lit courtyard gently accompanied by a very good guitarist on a warm summer’s night. The restaurant is long established and family run and provides delicious food and careful service. We were gently looked after by a waiter who helped us choose some Polish red wine which was light but well bodied, a bit like a Beaujolais and we thought might suite our choice of food. We started off with soused herring tartar with mustard and sour cream and cold soup made of beet leaf and sour cream. One of us then had veal in a delicious sauce with side salads of sauerkraut and potato,as the waiter advised, while the other enjoyed baked wild boar neck served in gravy and accompanied by pearl barley risotto with boletus mushrooms. Both were deliciously filling and cooked beautifully. For dessert we had mint cheesecake with dark chocolate and kiwi sauce. We tried to go back to the restaurant one lunchtime, but it's serving schedule did not fit with our other plans, unfortunately. Aug 2018
